UPDATE: HELP US RULE KONGREGATE!!
If you like this game, please take a second to visit
http://www.kongregate.com/games/pixeljamgames/dino-run and rate it. The dinos need your support! :)

Whats up Dinos...
Here's the latest from Pixeljam. We hope the NG crowd enjoys it.

MULTIPLAYER mode is at xgenstudios.com/play/dino run. Race your friends!
If you donate any amount to pixeljam, you get 50+ hats/helmets for your dino + many new colors, which show up in Multiplayer as well: pixeljam.com/donations.

If the game looks weird or wont show a link, try the pop-up version.
INTEL MAC USERS: use Safari. Firefox will not play this game well.

All the basics can be found in HOW TO PLAY, but here are some pointers anyway:

Escape the pyroclastic wall of doom and find your dino sanctuary!
AWSD or Arrow keys move the dino. Or use a combo of both.
SHIFT key gives you a speed boost, which recharges every 20 seconds or so.
Press down while jumping for an air attack. Useful for many things.
You must duck to eat things on the ground.

The game can be played in CHALLENGE or SPEEDRUN mode. It defaults to challenge, which is a collection of 7 levels. Speedruns can be unlocked and chosen in the OPTIONS screen. You need Bones to unlock speedruns (and buy goodies). You get bones by eating critters and reaching milestones.

Earn DNA by collecting eggs and eating critters. Use your DNA to upgrade your dino.
The game auto-saves. You have 3 slots open for different dinos.

The game is DEEP so EXPLORE and have fun!

After all this time, and it was just right here.

I remember back when the lobbies used to be full of players and I'd occasionally come back and slowly watch as the lobbies had less and less players until it was completely deserted...

They couldn't escape from extinction...

Nostalgic game - used to play it all the time, and it's still really fun.

One of my fav flash games and I still play it :D

Aw man I love this game
